Advice to Management

.

Current Employee - Developer

I have been working at PBS Systems full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good sense of team unit - love the people I work with. I feel like I've always had the ability to make a difference for customers and impacting my work experience. I have seen great people rise... quickly and create opportunity for themselves and others. There is so much growth at PBS, that those who want to build a career can work with management to find a rewarding career path matching their strengths

Cons

There's been a lot of growth and hiring in the past couple of years... starting new means you have to shine to get accelerated career growth. That said, I've seen the people who invest themselves get... rewarded.

Advice to Management

Keep focused on employees! This past year with a major salary restructure was great; the thoughtfulness on making a great team environment in the new building is also exciting.
